Figure descriptions

The letters are approximately four times the height of the surrounding figures. In the background, multiple figures build a snowman. At the right side of the illustration, a man skates on a frozen body of water. There are buildings and trees in the distant background. Mistletoe grows in the bottom-right corner of the illustration, and tangled branches are piled in the bottom-left corner of the illustration. The numbers “1866” are formed from ice and hang from the branches. Small branches form a partial figurative border around the bottom-right corner of the illustration. 1/2-page illustration contained within a single-ruled border.
